Why does someone prefer to buy one pair of headphones over another? Why does a wind turbine look the way it does? Why does my washing machine last longer than my sister's?
In everyday life, we rarely think about what properties a product must have. Yet the question is highly exciting, because products have to fulfill many criteria at the same time: For example, they should be functionally reliable and user-friendly, attractively designed, but also cost-effective and sustainable.
In our bachelor's degree program in product development and technical design, you will learn to design and further develop technologically oriented products – consumer goods such as household items or motor vehicles, but also capital goods such as technical equipment that itself serves production. You will also acquire the know-how on how to control such development processes. Your study content will include techniques of computer-aided development, construction, industrial design as well as material and manufacturing techniques.
